Beauty in the Details

Good morning, beautiful friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and got to enjoy June in all its glory. I wanted to say a quick thank you to all who commented on my most recent posts, over from a few parties I posted to. Your comments and kind words meant more to me than you can possibly know! And to those of you I'm blessed to now have as followers, thank you and welcome! I'm so happy to share me life with you, and would love to hear about yours!

Yesterday Matt and I spent the evening with one of our favorite couple friends making homemade pizzas and playing our favorite board game, Settlers. So fun! As we were running out the door, I noticed the simple beauty of one of my favorite spots - my dressing table.

This weekend had been much less busy than usual and I actually had time to clean up my room a bit, and if you read my last post you know that's not exactly my forte : ) My dressing and make up space looked so lovely without all the make up, hair products and random accessories piled around (not to mention the loose foundation powder practically glued to the desk with layers of hairspray ... that was a fun cleaning project! : ). I thought I'd share with you a few details of my "beauty bar" since I think it really is the little pretty details that make life worth savoring.

{the complete view of my dressing table. my bedroom is much more girly and shabby chic than the rest of the house. the wall hangings are just a random grouping that didn't have anywhere else to land, but i like the way it looks.}

{a sweet bird jewelry stand displays my beloved necklaces}

{a hodgepodge of jewels, bangles and more in an antique dish from my nana. i love the little hand shaped nail clippers from Francesca's Collections.}

{My favorite bottle of perfume sits atop a metal rose mirror tray from hobby hobby with faux mercury glass candle holders. They were on clearance at Target several years ago and are perfect to hold my make up}

{my favorite headband. i would probably wear it every day if all my outfits matched it! from banana republic}

{the best hand cream ever created. i love any food with almonds or amaretto, but it's great to smell too! the thick cream is heavenly on your hands and the almond milk scent is amazing.}

{i created this earring holder maybe 5 years ago. it's just a frame from hobby lobby with the backing replaced with window screen. it's a simple project but really elevates your jewelry to artwork status.}

{can you tell i love pearls?!}

That's all for now! I hope these lovely little snippets brightened your day and reminded you to look for the beauty in the details!

{live beautifully}
